Before we put the sole purpose of a chair to the test at dinner, let’s eat breakfast! This baked oatmeal is the perfect treat for Thanksgiving morning before diving into the days cooking. If you are not the one cooking, be super nice and make this for the cook and then they will be thankful for you today ;-). Ulterior motives, anyone?
This oatmeal is for one serving, but can easily be doubled or quadrupled for a larger group. And feel free to get a little crazy with your toppings. I used peanut butter, vanilla Greek yogurt, and maple syrup. Yummy!
